Just Magnolia Challenge - A Sketch by Jay Jay

This weeks Challenge from Just Magnolia is a Sketch by Jay Jay

and heres my interpretation of it

I have used one of the new Magnolia "Of the Ceiling stamps", and its one of Tilda with a sealing wax stick making a mess. Ive stamped her onto white card and then coloured her with my copic pens, after which I have used the Scallop Nestabilitie dies to cut her out and to create a mount for her out of blue pearlescent card. The sentiment is one that I created and printed of my computer.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, with a first layer of dark blue card, and two paper designs that I have used from the new Papermania pad, they are quite delft looking a beautiful flower design in two different combinations. I then stuck a piece of lace down over the seam.
The mounted image was stuck slightly to the left in the centre and my sentiment down at the bottom on the right. The flowers were created with my Retro flower punches, and then arranged on top of some punched out leaves. The butterfuly is one of the Nestabilitie dies then inked over the pattern to make it stand out.
We are still experiencing rough weather down here on the Welsh border, theres still a lot of snow around and its rather icy on the paths and road, lets hope the forecasters are wrong and the snow theyve been promising us doesnt appear, as Im so looking forward to warmer weather as Im getting a bit fed up with this white stuff.

Hi Shirley
I am so sad! How could you read, is my cat Ricky very ill, and the prospects are not good for an improvement!
I must count every day with the worst!
He still eats very well and come back and visit us again, but he drinks and sleeps a lot!!
I wish you a wonderful and carefree weekend!!
